Transformative Geopolitics Series

The TRANSFORMATIVE GEOPOLITICS series was inspired by discussions in California and elsewhere about how to resolve international border issues, multiple identities, inequality, and the ways that exclusion of foreign nationals can dominate contemporary geopolitics. Geopolitics, from the Greek word (earth + politics), refers to the relationship between politics and territories.

New theories of geopolitical reasoning strive to reduce international border problems by revising current geopolitical practices through “transformative geopolitics” using the complex realities that unite people (environment, academics, politics, education, economy, recreation) to achieve a grounded geopolitical osmosis that incorporates many voices.Perhaps here we can begin to come to a visual understanding of how geography, politics and people can resolve their differences.

Geopolitical Harmony

 

FIELD NOTES: As an Immigration Attorney, I am intimately familiar with how international border issues not only break families apart but divide our Republican and Democratic political parties.

GEOPOLITICAL HARMONY visualizes how international borders could be transformed to resolve differences and promote harmony.

Geopolitical Osmosis

 

FIELD NOTES: I feel that a well grounded GEOPOLITICAL OSMOSIS (assimilation of ideas) would somehow incorporate many opinions regardless of international borders, politics, religion or culture.

Conflict of Interest

 

FIELD NOTES: CONFLICT OF INTEREST to me is any situation in which an individual or corporation or country is in a position to exploit another in some way for their benefit – and therefore disharmonious.
